What is it about?

It is a systematic review in English published in European Physical Education Review. Introduction - Pedagogical models: This is a relevant research line in the last years because they guide teachers toward an effective and innovative teaching practice. Some models have been widely investigated, such as sport education, cooperative learning or the games centred approach, among others. The results of the implementation of pedagogical models provide the different health domains (social, physical, cognitive and affective) and produce effective learning. However, the implementation of models in isolation have some limitations which it is neccessary to solve, and the hybridization of different pedagogical models can improve them. - Hybridizations: The term "hybridization" needs to be explained because it relates the use of differents parts of pedagogical models implemented at the same time, or the configuration of a new model different of the models hybridized. The hybridization has supposed the answer of maximizing the impact of the isolated pedagogical models and improving some of their constraints. Purpose of the research Describe the hybridizations among different pedagogical models in the educative system (from 1st to 12th level; 6-18 years old). Method Following an exhaustive process of searching, followed by exclusion and selection criteria, 20 studies have been selected definitely. The present review has been evaluated for an consolidated and reliable tool in order to check the quality of it. Results These research have been assessed and synthesized in the following structure: 'author/s'; 'hybridization'; ‘focus’; ‘country/participants/grades’; ‘sports/length’; ‘analysis/data sources’; and ‘outcomes'. The sport education model has been the most hybridized, followed by game centred approach, teaching for personal and social responsibility and cooperative learning (see figure). The main results of the present review are as follows: 1. The hybridizations extend the effects of the implementation of isolated pedagogical models. 2. The combination between models allows teachers to introduce different contents. 3. Hybridizations among game centred approach with other models, improve mainly the physical, cognitive and affective domains of the students. 4. Hybridizations among cooperative learning or teaching personal and social responsibility with other models, improve the social, cognitive, and affective domains of the students. In conclusion, hybridizations can be an effective strategy to develop a multi-model programme, and improve the constraints of the implementation of isolated pedagogical models.

Why is it important?

The use of hybridized pedagogical models orientate and support teachers to overcome the limitations of using isolated pedagogical models. This is important because isolated pedagogical models are only focuses on specific domains. This systematic review help reader to understand the evolution of this innovative strategy trough the first hybridization carried out (2000).
